Arrangement and description of 355 cubic feet of letters, diaries, and other personal papers from the Wade Hall Collection of American Letters, which chronicle various aspects of the American experience from 1750 to 1960.  Fifty cubic feet of material would be digitized, resulting in over 2,000 finding aids and 80,000 digitized documents. 

The Wade Hall Collection of American Letters, held at the University of Kentucky Libraries Special Collections Research Center (SCRC), includes thousands of individual collections, comprising 372 cubic feet of letters, diaries, and other personal papers. This diverse material documents the American experience through letters and diaries written by men women of different ages, races, education, and socio-economic status, from all over North America from 1750-1970s. “P.S. Write Again Soon”: Revealing 200 Years of the American Mosaic through the Wade Hall Collection of American Letters requests National Endowment of the Humanities funding to hire a Project Archivist to provide online access to this significant collection. The project expects to generate over 2000 keyword searchable finding aids and the digitization of 50 cubic feet from the collection.
